Warm/dry weather only? Yes oy is to the main grass area as it’s unsheltered but there’s also an indoor area that by day is a work space. Open from April through to December.

Rooftop review roundup: One of the rarer rooftops to open midday through so it’s got points for that. Not the glamorous hotel entrance some rooftops have – this is very much a hipster creative type hang out. Good tunes and a chilled vibe. Plastic cups (tho full marks for bubbles in a plastic flute not a beaker!) There’s a fun young feel but with sweeping views of the city, staff are friendly and is a fab spot for the sun setting to DJ vibes.

Warm/dry weather only? Yes – they do have some cover in some of the huts and in winter much more catered for.

Rooftop review roundup: Don’t let the shlep out of the central London bubble put you off – it’s worth the effort. (Though if it is a journey for you I would book – whilst it’s free to walk in most of the time and a big venue, it’s worth guaranteeing your spot) The views are spectacular, there’s a summer beach vibe (minus an actual beach), day beds and garden booths to be booked and igloos in the winter! By summer lawn games available and by winter an ice rink. A fabulous all rounder rooftop.
